In the Gospel, our King Jesus came not to be served, but rather to serve. In fact Jesus’ whole life was centered on glorifying God the Father through serving those around Him. Those who follow Jesus are also called to serve their neighbors based on Jesus’ own example. At Emmaus Church we desire to follow Jesus by serving Denver together. Here are some of the ways in which our Gospel Communities are currently serving the city. Come follow Jesus with us by serving alongside of us in the city.
WASH PARK WEST
The Wash Park Gospel Community serves with Open Door Ministries. This ministry exists to provide practical help and hope to people in urban Denver who are homeless or have low income. Cornerstone House, a long-term home for disabled men, is one of the many avenues of ministry that falls under Open Door. The Wash Park Gospel Community serves the residents of Cornerstone monthly through building relationships and doing service projects to improve their housing.
The Harvard Gulch Gospel Community is now connecting and serving International Students at the University of Colorado Denver. They are building friendships and sharing their homes and hope in Christ with people from all around the world. Statistics show that 70-80% of international students never enter an American home during their stay and many have never heard the Gospel. Join the Harvard Gulch Gospel Community in serving and sharing Jesus with international students.
The Athmar Park Gospel Community has just finished a season of helping teach English to Sudanese refugees and are now serving in the Athmar Park Neighborhood. They are still exploring different needs and opportunities in their community. Join the Athmar Park Gospel Community as they serve their neighbors.
The Capitol Hill Gospel Community is currently serving the Baker neighborhood by cohosting a monthly game night with Church of the Advent at Hirschfeld Towers, which is a low income housing complex. The Baker neighborhood is a very diverse neighborhood, and the residents of Hirschfeld Towers are often overlooked in many of the neighborhood's HOA discussions. We aim to build relationships with those in our church's neighborhood who are often viewed as outsiders.
